are siding with president obama. romney at 41%. that's an average of the swing states you point out. many states i believe 30 plus, are voting right now. ohio, i believe tomorrow starts its early voting. when you look at a moment that's supposed to be, michael, a game changer, and the candidate is rehearsing zingers, as reported with "the new york times" what could change the whole momentum in 37 days? haven't we heard already a pluts ra of information -- plethora of information from mitt romney, both vague when it comes to tax loopholes and maybe specifics when he talks about the 47%? >> i don't know that zingers necessarily turn it around. john harwood had a great piece in today's "new york times" talking about how rarely does a debate alter the outcome of a presidential race. so, you know, a good one liner may take -- get people to take notice but i don't think it turns around the momentum. he needs to completely right this ship because ever since the 47%, and the president clinton speech at the debate, the momentum has gone completely against him. >> i'm going to bring in chris. one m
with mitt romney. so the obama camp feels good. the issue would be right for the picking, a state that president obama carried in 2008 with all of the economic problems it should be a state that is easy to carry but it is still neck and neck giving the obama camp hope that some of the key battlegrounds where mitt romney should be breaking through, they believe he is not. >>heather: thank you, live from las vegas. >>gregg: the race for the white house entering a critical phase now. we are approaching the first presidential election. look at the latest fox news poll showing president obama holding his lead over governor romney. we will bring in our campaign insiders. representative john leboutillier, a former republican congressman. and pat caddell, former pollster for jimmy carter. and doug schoen former pollster for bill clinton. doug, the numbers you saw on the screen, since the conventions, the president has gained four and romney has lost two, a swing of six points. >> that is where the race is. there are some polls in the swing states showing outsize leaps for obama the ink th
affairs. >> early voting and absentee balloting underway in half the state, romney is opening and closing his events with this pitch. >> i need you to find people who went out there and voted for obama and convince him to join our team. >> in an interview with fox news, romney and ryan both blasted the president for refusing to call the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya terrorism. when his own administration has already done so. >> it's clear that it was a terrorist act. if al-qaeda assassinates american diplomats, that is an act of terror. that's what this was. that's what has been explained by other member administration. white house doesn't want to admit it. that's what happens. it's a very troubling and disturbing development. >> i think when the president said that the developments in the middle east are like bumps in the road, he badly misunderstands the nature of what is happening in the middle east. not just the assassination of our diplomats but a muslim brotherhood leader becoming president of egypt. 20,000 people killed in syria. development in middle east far from bumps in
that if governor romney standing there with the incumbent president of the united states is just there at the end. he wins a certain amount. he's just standing there at the end, he survived. >> well, he does gain by being on stage with an incumbent president. that's an elevating effect. the question is, he needs a lot of elevation right now. >>> entitlement reform is going to be a huge topic during these debates. and steve rattner, you have your charts on this, and you'll break it apart for the candidates because it's very hard to understand where they stand on these things because they won't say anything. >> we're going to talk about medicare, which is one of the big issues, and you're right, it's very, very hard to break it apart. but you see surprising things about where they stand. so we're going to lay it out as clear as i can. there are three plans. therest obama's plan, there's romney's sort of plan and ryan's plan. let's take a look at this and the next ten years. so the ten years in front of us and what each proposed. what's interesting is that president obama and congressman ryan have a
out of the ten key battleground states. now romney has actually -- he has debated almost 20 times in the primary season. how does he actually change people's impression of him? particularly his likability factor. >> and we've seen that he has a little bit of a deficit, yovrl, when it comes to likability, when it comes to his favorable and unfavorable numbers compared to the president in a lot of these polls. yeah, i think part of -- a little bit of what he is going to try to do is show more of the human face, and we've seen him try to do that on the campaign trail as well. go back to that number, though. you just showed that. that is a brand new poll from abc news and the washington post, suzanne. they asked, simple as this, who is more likely to win the debates. >> with the exception of just a few cases, usually the debates don't usually change the game. we have more than half hour of the country now that is able to vote early. how confident are they that they can actually make any kind of difference? >> that's a great point there. there are ten states as of tomorrow when ohio st
is holed up in vegas for two days preparing. mitt romney will be in colorado tonight. the latest poll shows president obama and mitt romney locked in a tight race nationally. but where it counts, those battle ground states, the president still leads. and here's another interesting poll. most people think the president will win the first debate which may be why he's trying to lower expectations. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the the zingers. governor romney is good. i'm just okay. >> and paul ryan played his own version. >> president obama is a gifted speaker. he's been on the national stage for many years. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> but if all candidates are trying to lower expectations, maybe chris christie missed that memo. >> governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens. and i think that's when you're going to see this race really start to tighten and move in governor romney's direction. come th
romney is campaigning today, as you saw moments ago, in the state of pennsylvania. he's attending a rally near philadelphia. governor romney is trailing in statewide polls, but earlier today he was telling donors that he is going to win the state of pennsylvania. really? all right, let's take a closer look at this battleground, swing state, the state of pennsylvania. here you've got 12 important battle growpped states identified in yellow, so let's take a closer look at pennsylvania. here's their economy. unemployment rate identical to the national average of 8.1%. the average price of gasoline has actually doubled in the time that president obama has been in office, foreclosure one out of more than 1,000, and the number of visits there, well, the president two, mitt romney four. that'll soon change. the population is 12.7 million. now, this is the important stat here, 20 out of 270 electoral votes. so in terms of the electoral college, very important. a republican governor, these are the two main industries, health care and manufacturing. um, we're going to talk about coal in just a mome
. we told you about the brand new poll showing that that man in swing state of ohio is amitt romney by 10 percent. but are they really swinging toward the president? or is there skewing going on by the left-based main stream med yampt a number of people on the right feel that there is something, a polster media polling bias and what they do, they sample more democrats than republicans and naturally the democrats will wind up with the vote. why will they do that? one perhaps to keep mitt romney's donors from coughing up more cash and keep people from doing early voting. >> gretchen: the idea is why do they weight it one way to the other. they base it on the turn out in the last election cycles. they see more democrats came to the polls they weight it to democrats as opposed to the republicans and defendants. >> steve: what about 2010 and the land slide with the republicans winning be you when mr. obama had a highly motivated base of young people and latinos? which model do you follow. >> brian: we'll listen to karl rove and then we'll talk. >> when news agencies like the cbs news rep
states, that was a state that was supposed to be the relatively easy gift for romney. there's a one or two-point race in north carolina on october 1st. they're facing an uphill slide across the board and they know it. >> by the way, you can't run 30-second ads in enough places to do this. if you're going to win, if you're going to turn things around, i'll say the quote that drives liberals crazy, a rising tide lifts all boats, this first debate on wednesday, it's got to shock the campaign back to life. because if romney does well, you're not going to be able to buy enough ads to do what a great performance by mitt romney would do on wednesday night. that would tighten it in ohio. it would tighten it in north carolina. probably go ahead in north carolina. it would tie it in iowa, probably tie it up in iowa. that's why you can't buy your way out of this mess the romney campaign is in right now, but you can outdebate them. >> more than anything else what seemed to have happened in august was democrats got enthused by their convention more than republicans did. the latest polling shows
. if mitt romney is elected president of the united states. would things pick up? >> if he repeals obama care as he said he will . and new rules in legislation, yes, that will change the small nature of business. and a real tax cut to put a shot in the arm to small enterprizes. and cash to liberate for the use of the private sector and should get things turned around. these are personal opinions. >> steve: he seems to what he's talking that's why so many people watch him on fox business net work. >> eric: a crazed fan taking a bite out of danny. >> steve: some say the debate will be er. washington insider. coming up with the scoup, next. ♪ ♪ two people are dead. motorcycle club getting ready for a charity ride when several armed men showed up and started shooting. cops said they had a argument in the parking lot. an attack on adonai. he said a fan within to kiss him and bit his face instead . he is not pressing charges, but he said she might have been on the drug bath salts. gretch, over to you. >> gretchen: crazy . mitt romney and president obama two days away from facing off. what
-founder and romney supporter tom stemberg. no one understands the swing state of ohio better than senator rob portman. he'll be joining us from cincinnati. but before we get to all this, and believe me, this is a lot to get on today, let's get you up to speed on this morning's other top headlines with andrew. welcome back. >> thanks. we haven't even talked about football, but i hope we get a chance to. china central bank reportedly injecting 57.9 billion into money markets. regulators are struggling to maintain liquidity without the injection. speaking of china, the country's largest listed steel maker has suspended output at a plant as the economy slows and demand weakens. meantime 40% of china's iron ore mines are standing idle as steel prices have crumbled. and loans to firms and households fell more than expected. ecb staying loans to the private sector fell 0.6% from the same month a year ago. italy's borrowing costs falling at a bond auction today. analysts say the auction shows nand for italian government paper remains healthy. and eu regulators are prepare to go charge microsoft for failing t
challenger has a benefit when they get up on the stage against the president of the united states. the debates level the playing field. they put you on the stage in an equal footing. i think mitt romney comes into the debate with an advantage because of that. i think the question in this race, all campaigns are different and i think in this race, this is very much of a choice election. i think people see very different visions for the future between these two candidates and my guess is, when we get out of the debates they are going to continue to see the two visions and right now they're picking barack obama's vision. i think in 2004, it was more of a referendum on bush and i think ultimately people decided that the referendum they wanteded to stay with the incumbent. i think this election is a little different. >> i'm not sure you got to the meat of my question, why your guy won the debates but lost eat lex. >> well, again, i think he won the debates because when standing on the stage with the president of the united states and you give a decent performance you're going to -- the
to the united states given a zero corporate tax rate environment. are you hearing these things from these other two guys? no, not even remotely close. they're arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare. romney says he wants to balance the federal budget, but that he wants to increase spending for the military. well, it doesn't add up. and if we want to believe in the things that these guys are saying, then i guess we belief in the easter bunny and santa claus and by extension the tooth fairy and, steve, i don't think thai coming. >> host: gary johnson is with us, and want to remind viewers we'll a add a fourth line this morning for third-party voters, 202-585-3883 is your line, and we'll get to your calls in just a couple moments. at this point, um, governor johnson, what's the strategy for the rest of the election? where are you focusing most of your time and attention right now? >> guest: oh, right now there's a lot of attention that's being drawn to what it is that i am saying. i'm being recognized now for being at 6% nationally. um, i'll just ask you an obvious question here t
for tomorrow's big day. mitt romney is softening his stance on a key immigration issue and now he is saying he will honor temporary work permits, allow them to stay in the united states because of president barack obama's recent executive order. reporting live from washington d.c., allison burns, ktvu channel 2 morning news. >> don't forget, we will bring you the coverage live and the debate will be followed by a special addition of our ktvu news. >>> and they are warning about identity theft after several male thefts were reported in novato. 2 dozen mailboxes were reported on school road and crest road. the mail stolen included personal checks, credit cards and other items containing financial information. if you have any information about these thefts, get in contact with the police. >>> in berkeley, get in contact with the city lie -- sit-lie ordinance where people would be banned during certain hours. some say it's good for business but some protesters say the law targets homeless. >>> nurses walked off the job just a few minutes ago in a strike that is scheduled to last more than 24 hours
said this is what's going to help romney win. this is something that's happening only in red states by republican legislators to address an issue which isn't even happening. when fraud happens, it happens when votes, voters register to vote as was the problem with the firm hired by republicans in florida and other states. republicans who have had this problem with registering voters, but at the polls there's almost no incidence of fraud and even fewer convictions. it's a solution in search of a problem is exactly what it is. >> oh, boy. alisyn: lars? >> bologna. alisyn: would you like to expound on your theory? >> usually bologna works really well with alan -- >> thank you. >> listen, there's no voter fraud being detected because you don't require anybody to prove who her. the fact is -- who they are. the fact is that americans' voting rights are sacred, and they should only be extended to people who are american citizens. and asking american citizens to prove who they are is something that americans routinely do to check into a hotel, to get on an airplane, to cash a check, for any
words against him. this was soon after the president's state of the union address. we have come too far to turn back now. this is donald trump and the mitt romney over there. "you guys hold him down, and i will cut his hair off." obama is pointing at mitt romney. america, i smell something fishy. there we go. this is the president painting the economy over there which has wilted. we have it flip-flops here. government health care and same- sex marriage. mitt romney says, well, you get used to it. -- used to them. these are the obamacare sparklers. there it is. the tea party, that is mitt romney and paul ryan. "you are not really my type, but your wing man makes you irresistible." do you support chick-fil-a's ceo on traditional marriage or do you favor a nationwide boycott? i miss the separation of church and fast food. this is not talking to the machine very well. do we support the failed policies that got us into the miss or the failed policies that have not gotten us out of it? i do a lot of cartoons where i do not really concentrate -- i am a big believer in the just opposing stupidi
